Premier League Fantasy Football: Who's Hot and Who's Not in Gameweek 19

Hey! You! Snap out of that roast turkey food coma you've eaten yourself into and listen up!

There's barely any time until gameweek 19 of the Premier League rolls around, so we gotta start working on your fantasy football team.

So clear that half-finished bowl of Christmas pudding off your lap and get thinking, as on Boxing Day there are plenty of great games for you to watch and, more importantly, pick up fantasy points from.

Right, what are we doing? Too much filibustering! Here are our tips for success on Boxing Day and Friday.


Who's Hot

Ben Foster - Three bonus points against Manchester United took Foster's tally up to 11 for gameweek 18. Watford have some intriguing fixtures coming up, facing Sheffield United, Aston Villa and Wolves in their next three, but two clean sheets in the last couple of weeks mean Foster is one to watch.

Aaron Ramsdale

Aaron Ramsdale - One of FPL's top scorers so far this season, signing Ramsdale would be a clever move. There's every chance Bournemouth could shut out Arsenal, while upcoming games against Brighton, West Ham, Watford and Norwich could yield plenty of points.

Who's Not

Rui Patricio - It's one clean sheet in the last ten Premier League fixtures for Wolves' Portuguese stopper. He does pick up points for saves made reasonably reguarly, but doesn't currently offer good value at £5.2m.


Who's Hot

John Lundstram - When Sheffield United play at home, there's a good chance Lundstram will pick up points. With an average of 6.7 per game at Bramall Lane, you'd be a fool not to consider bringing him in for the visit of Watford - if he isn't part of your team already, that is.

Lucas Digne,Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Lucas Digne - Like Lundstram, Digne has a strong record at home, picking up three clean sheets and three assists at Goodison Park so far this season. There's every chance he could improve those statistics against Burnley in Carlo Ancelotti's first game as Everton manager. 

Who's Not

Aaron Wan-Bissaka - A surprisingly large number of managers own the former Crystal Palace full back. Yeah, he doesn't let anyone past him, but he also doesn't produce in attacking areas and ​United are struggling for clean sheets. Definitely one for the bin.


Who's Hot

Kevin De Bruyne - Man, he may have only picked up four points against Leicester, but ​De Bruyne looked like he was on another planet for most of the game. Wolves are no slouches and always put up a fight against the top six, but if the Belgian is in the mood he'll have no problem carving the Wanderers' defence apart.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish - Aston Villa may be experiencing something of a slump, but Grealish is doing everything he can halt the slide. He scored what ended up being a consolation against Southampton and has been brought in by more than 140,000 managers ahead of his side's clash with Norwich.

Who's Not

Bernardo Silva - He'll almost certainly bag 20 points against Wolves now, but the 25-year-old has managed just one goal and two assists in his last eight games. For his price tag, it's best to look elsewhere.


Who's Hot

Danny Ings - The former ​Liverpool striker may be up against ​Chelsea on Boxing Day, but you cannot argue with his run of form. Ings has seven goals in his last seven games, also picking up 13 bonus points in that time. Time to jump on the bandwagon.

Danny Ings

Teemu Pukki - Norwich's main man has stepped up his away form following a pretty rough patch notching twice in his last two games away from Carrow Road. The clash with Villa could end up being an absolute goal-fest, considering how porous both teams have been at the back this season. 

Who's Not

Sergio Aguero - He may be fit again, but it looks like Pep Guardiola will again bench Aguero for the trip to Wolves. Put it off for a few days.
